Usually ski french alps but DH fancies heli skiing so we are looking at Dolomites. Half term disarray here means we have to go easter, first week of April. Anyone advice a resort that is high enough and any recommendations for hotels or chalets? We usually self cater in the French style apartment blocks (CGH etc) but I can't find anything quite like that there. Two poss three families ideally apartments in the same block or if we can afford it a hotel obvs must be family friendly!

Thanks in advance

We went to the Dolomites - Val Gardena - in the third week of March 2 years ago. The snow was very wet when we arrived, no snow fall whilst we were there and by the time we left there was very little snow at all. If youa re going to wait until Easter, I'd really rethink France (or Canada!).

I went years ago at Easter in the beginning of April to Cortina d'Aprezzo and stayed just outside in a little place called San Vito di Cadore. No snow where we stayed but loads on the main slopes but very hot! We had to get a bus to the lifts which was like a regular local services, may not have run on bank holidays or had different times.
